Removing remnants of uninstalled software?

I purchased an electronic repair manual for my car last December. After a recent computer crash I attempted to re-install the software, but the installation was unsuccessful. When I try to launch the program I got an error message stating something to the effect that I installed the software past the 3 month license expiration date. I uninstalled, set the system clock back to December and resintalled. During this installation the activation key was already filled in, indicating that I had not completely removed everything, and despite turning back the clock I received the same error message. So my question is: how do I go about searching and destroying this information left on my system? The only response from the vendor is that I need to reformat my HD and reinstall???

Thanks in advance for any help. :tazz:
